"Best Drive in beach Kannur Kerala" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 days ago
Incredible India. Ever heard of a drive in beach in India? Well you can enjoy this privilege, this magnificent clean beach here in Kannur Kerala. We did a few rounds on the quad bikes and collected so many shells and starfish. Muzhappilangad Drive-in Beach is a beach surrounded by greenery. It is located parallel to National Highway 66 between Thalassery and Kannur in Kerala. Drive-in beach with 4 km approximately of firm sand and shallow water, attracting cars and motorcyclists taking their vehicles through shallow waves. It is a good beach to swim in. Our vehicles went right up to the beach front and parked for the best view in the house!! India is truly incredible. Kerala is all about all the never seen before - try North Kerala for a good change and adventurous places time. It is easily accessible by bus and is a safe tourist spot. Don't forget to take your hats and water to hydrate yourselves. At noon the sun is too strong, go before 11 am or after 4 pm to avoid getting sun burn or too hot.

"Muzhapilangad drive in beach"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jan 9, 2017
Planned this trip to have a drive in muzhapilangad beach which was an excellent experience. The beach is clean, nice to drive close to sea, with good breeze. This beach could be visited any time of the day irrespective of sunlight when driving by vehicle but better to be in day to avoid crowd. This is a rare experience to drive 4kms in a beach with wheels hitting water. Any traveller visiting Kannur with own vehicle should feel this driving experience.

"Kannur only for this Drive-in !!"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Nov 15, 2016
Very good and clean beach. You can play for hours and still want to play more.
You can get into waters and take your vehicles to the water. It is a great feeling and you must try.
Only setback is the beach does not have any refreshments and toilets.

"A beautiful drive-in beach"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Mar 22, 2016
Muzhappilangad Beach is a drive in beach about 15 km from Kannur. An entry fee of INR 20 is charged for cars and one can drive along the beach for about 4 km. The sea being calm here this beach is any swimmer's dream. It is absolutely clean, neat and one can really enjoy the evenings just driving by the sea or having a swim.
